Do You Get Phone Calls .......

When you do the surveys that prompts you to provide your phone number,
Do you have companies following up and start ringing the phone off the hook?

Well, I have a dual sim, so I do give them my number, they just get the disposable one, not the good one.

They've been good so far though - I've had exactly one phone call, it was for the reasons they said they wanted my phone number (product sample sent by snail mail, survey completed over the phone).

Despite them being perfectly good so far, I still wouldn't give them a non-disposable phone number.

Like email, one pretty much needs a junk phone.

I usually do give my home phone number.
It's just that I rarely have my home phone turned on. :mrgreen:

Witch brings a question . Some competition / surveys masked as surveys is often with a clause about various companies can call to promote their goods . If I enter just 1 of those those the phone starts ringing of the hook . Are we allowed to use our everyday phone number at Clixsense and a disposable number in these offers ? I a long time ago gave up doing these offers due to the anoing phonecalls at all times of the day .

It would be an edge case in the Clixesense privacy policy and strictly against the market research code of conduct for either party to have any idea what you've given to the other. Since the MRS code of conduct comes largely from European law, that's probably the same for you too.

Oh boy, My smartphone has at least 5-10 sellers calling every day, Just use the phrase "We dont use that here" It will stunn them for a while he he, And when they regain their senses just repeat it again and the conversation will quickly be over.

Sometimes i give them my mobile broadband phone number, Then they can call that all they like :lol:

I never give my cell phone number. If it's an offer that requires cell phone number, I don't do the offer.

My home phone muted as got tired political calls during our special election and it stay off longer as now runoff election.

I normal give cell phone number which is never on every few weeks empty my voice mail.

Wish banks stop asking for mobile number just because 99% population that best way contact them does not mean is for me.

I left a pharmacy as they insisted on a mobile number. Walgreen's was happy with my home phone and there no wait when go there so guess that's why. They saved me $1000+ a month on two prescriptions by telling me about manufacture coupon. So happy I left CVS which was always alot of wait.

I tell them I am sight and hearing impaired and unless they are on a dedicated land line I cannot understand what they are saying. Or maybe I just say ,"Hello" two or three times and they terminate the call. :lol: :clap:

BTW== I am 87 years of age so I do not have to lie about my affirmatives. Glad to have my mental capacities so I can do ClixSense and a few other paying sites. :thumbup:
